    Florida Vacation Produces Gold And Silver!

    Just returned home from Florida. I was lucky enough to escape from work for a few days and go metal detecting with a few friends (Camb1 And GLD777) along the Florida Gulf coast. The weather was gorgeous, the water was warm and the eye candy was plentiful! Unfortunately almost all the beaches we detected were heavily sanded in, which means few targets. Despite the deep sand I was still able to bring home some nice keepers. I found several pieces of cool silver jewelry and charms, and one Very nice 14k ring with a large Emerald surrounded by 12 diamonds. Had the ring checked out and all the stones are real

    Also pictured below is a group photo of some Tnet members that met up to detect at Siesta Key. From left to right Debbie (cntrydncr1) then Jim (GLD777) Then Doug (Doug Turner) then Bruce (camb1) then Bill (floridabill) then Me (digger62918) and last Pete (Erikk)

    Siesta Key is by far the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The water is super clear and the sand is extra fine with very minimal shells which makes fast and easy sifting. I would love to live in the Gulf area....maybe someday.

    Digger , I nominated your emerald ring find for BANNER !!! Because large emeralds are rather
    rare (more than diamonds !) and they rarely show up on t-net - in appreciable sizes - and
    this is a valuable find as well !!! Argentium.

    Thanks Argentium! I really have no idea of the value of the ring. I took it to a jeweler to have it tested but didn't ask about the value I probably need to take it some where and get it appraised, just to satisfy my curiosity.
